Two more DKE members have been arrested, accused of abusive hazing at LSU, according to the New Orleans Advocate.  

New arrest warrants released this morning also accuse members of making pledges walk barefoot on broken glass and hitting and kicking them.

The two newest arrests are 20-year-old Blake Andrew Chalin of Gretna: three counts of misdemeanor criminal hazing and 22-year-old Shakti P. Gilotra, 22, Kenner: one count each of felony second-degree battery and misdemeanor criminal hazing.

"The victim stated that he was trying to be careful while walking on the broken glass but still received visible injury and cuts to his feet," police wrote in the warrant. The victim later "had to pull pieces of glass out of his feet."

The accusations against DKE members come amid the LSU's ongoing quest for increased safety within its Greek system following the hazing death of  freshman, Max Gruver in the fall of 2017.
